Time Out Sydney
Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
Mad Bastards (2011)
Tron Legacy (2010)
"What unfolds is your typical chase-and-rescue scenario, all just colour and movement, but with a rock-out score by Daft Punk and a genuinely bright patch in the high-camp form of Castor (Michael Sheen)."
The Loved Ones (2012)
Easy A (2010)
"Come in Lindsay Lohan: your time is up. Ever since you went off the rails we've been on the lookout for a feisty, freckled ranga with a straight-bourbon voice and killer comic timing, and we've found her in the form of Emma Stone."
Trash Humpers (2010)
"Viewers unfamiliar with Korine's alternative style of filmmaking may walk out in disgust. But if you're willing to broaden your cinematic expectations to include the utterly random, it's a must-see. "
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
Shrek Forever After (2010)
Animal Kingdom (2010)
Harry Brown (2010)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Up in the Air (2009)
Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)
It Might Get Loud (2009)
Astro Boy (AstroBoy) (2009)
"Diehard fans should be warned that the movie will not deliver the nostalgic hit they are hoping for. This is not necessarily such a bad thing. At least a new generation is being exposed to Astro Boy."
Mao's Last Dancer (2010)
Taking Woodstock (2009)
District 9 (2009)
Beautiful Kate (2009)
Public Enemies (2009)
Drag Me to Hell (2009)
"Drag Me to Hell isn't a classic by any means, but feels like a palate cleanser before the next big project - and anything that washes the taste of Spider-man 3 out of Raimi's mouth can only be a good thing."
Every Little Step (2009)
"You like 'splosions and special effects? Hey, you got 'em. But for anyone over the age of 12, this hardly makes up for lead-footed plotting or the fact these metal machines can't even stay consistent within their own mythology."
The Girlfriend Experience (2009)
"It's ... hard not to wonder if a skilled actress would have been better equipped to play Christine instead of a famous porn star -- but reality seems to be the directive in Soderbergh's film, no matter how bland that reality might be."
500 Days of Summer (2009)
"It offers us the kind of friendship that comes with a brilliant soundtrack, a story with a solid mixture of fantasy and truth, and the bolstering sort of hopefulness that we might, by accident, fall into a version of its world someday."
The Limits of Control (2009)
Land of the Lost (2009)
The Hangover (2009)
Sunshine Cleaning (2009)
I Love You, Man (2009)
"In less sure hands this parade of oddities could have become tiresome. Which only makes Rudd's central performance more impressive, holding the entire edifice together by sheer force of personality."
"Call us cynical, but isn't there something just a tiny bit iffy about three sworn virgins performing a rock show in which the climax has them shooting gallons of white "party" foam over their adoring girl fans?"
Gomorrah (Gomorra) (2008)
X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009)
